Re: Sad about self-weaning a rainbow baby

It sounds like for both of you the babies are very interested in their surroundings and a bottle is easier to take and go. Try making nursing a play time by bringing a book to look at or toys to explore. Let baby latch on and watch TV. Or play in the bed with your shirt off, chase baby, let baby chase you. DD loves to explore my face, mouth, while nursing. Having a few days of being available and relaxed might help a lot. I would put water in some of the bottles, but that might be the wrong advice.

Two times my milk has dried up on week-long trips away from DS, and I got it back 100% each time by being patient and offering my breast a lot. She would refuse it a lot too, but eventually she comes back. She is 19mo old now. Good luck to you both!
